A Russian Sukhoi Su-24 attack aircraft makes a very-low altitude pass by the USS Donald Cook (DDG 75),an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, operating in the Baltic Sea April 12, 2016The Pentagon on Monday described last week’s “unsafe” manoeuver by a Russian fighter that flew close to a US spy plane, saying it had performed a barrel roll. Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said a Russian Su-27 flew less than 50 feet (15 meters) from the wingtip of an RC-135 reconnaissance plane in international airspace over the Baltic Sea last Thursday. It then “conducted a barrel roll from the left side of the aircraft, going over the top of the aircraft, and ended up on the right side of the aircraft,” Davis said.
